Part of Trojan's extensive box set series, the Upsetter Box Set is a fine collection of Scratch's work, even if serious fans will no doubt have most of this material already. What makes this one stand out from other Trojan collections is that the third CD contains some of Scratch's 1980's solo work. While this might leave some listeners scratching their heads for the second half of the final CD, it does make this collection more complete.
